The apartment suits one or two guests. I myself live not far away, so I can welcome you on arrival and be on call during your stay.
Variety of restaurants for every taste nearby, in particular there is an excellent Japanese restaurant called Hashi just down the road which has been described as a "hidden gem" and very highly rated on trip advisor. You also can't miss the take-aways and local pubs, all close by.

This clean and tidy flat was perfect for our stay with a young child. Great location near shops, restaurants and transport. Very quiet and well kept block. Paula, our host, was awesome and nothing was too much trouble. She was realky prompt returning our emails/calls and everything worked perfectly. Would definitely love to stay again sometime. Many thanks Paula :-)
Paula made us very welcome and was very helpful regarding travel suggestions.
We stayed in Paula's flat for 6 days in December 2014.
It was spotless, very tastefully and effectively decorated throughout.
The location is great - and armed with an Oyster card, London is an open book.
We used the 200 Bus at the road end to go to Wimbledon Village and to access the District Line Tube service from Wimbledon to visit the Museums at South Kensington, while a short walk from the flat gave us the SW Train link into Vauxhall and the Victoria Line Tube.
Great stay and we recommend you check out Paula's flat.
The Flat is very neat and tidy. It is also in a very quiet neighborhood with the local train station and shops only a very short walk away. We really enjoyed our stay here and Paula was very accommodating, even giving us a parking disk for our vehicle. We will definitely book and stay with Paula again.
Paula was absolutely great and met up exactly as planned. The flat is in a great location very close to the Raynes Park Station and has all the amenities near by that one could possibly need. The flat is also superb, beautifully appointed and exactly as promised. It comes highly recommended.
Paula was great! We were 4 hours delayed in getting to her flat due to air transport problems and Paula was there waiting for us when we finally arrived. Her flat was very comfortable and convenient to the train station, a short 5 minute walk as advertised. We really liked the layout of the flat, which had an interior door that separated the lounge/kitchen from the bedroom and bathroom areas in addition to doors on those rooms as well. The flat was newly remodeled and everything was very modern and clean. We were very pleased with this, our first experience with AirBNB and will definitely try it again on future trips.
Great host and a really lovely flat. Excellent refurbishment, all very new but still homely.
Fantastic place. Great value. Perfect logistics and pleasure to deal with Paula. Highly recommend.
I'm a jewellery designer/maker from London and have studied and lived here all my life. Love cooking, good food, art/design & dancing so am more than happy to advise good places to visit around London!
